Generous Support

Thank You!

Generous friends and supporters raised a total of $346,052 for Laguna Art Museum at the virtual Gala 2020 Benefit Bash on September 26, 2020 – with $315,112 provided by generous Sponsors, Benefactors, and Patrons; as well as $30,940 raised by the public Bash offering free experiences to the community including a concert by Mad Dogs & The Englishman.

Supporting the museum’s far-reaching art education and exhibition programs, LAM’s Gala was a virtual extravaganza of performances, art, prizes, awards, and more. Emcees Jason Feddy and Malcolm Warner treated Sponsors, Benefactors, and Patrons to a Benefit program, and our global online community joined Jason Feddy’s band, Mad Dogs & The Englishman, for a free concert and experiences that celebrated Anna Hills Award recipients Greg and Barbara MacGillivray along with museum founders, members, docents, art, and more. Proceeds from the Bash ensure operating support for Laguna Art Museum to continue its mission to be the premier museum of California art and a center of culture for Laguna Beach.
